Yin Yoga is a slow practice. Yin focuses on the connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints by stretching with relaxed muscles. Yin postures are held for several minutes and specifically target the ligaments and fascia (connective tissue) in order to regain space and strength in the joints. It facilitates the removal of deep blockages to the energy flow in the Nadis (meridians). Yin can break down and soften stiff scar tissue and can relieve the accumulated stress of repetitive movements. It can also help with acute and chronic injuries. Yin Yoga promotes health with slow, intelligent and safe stretches. Wonderful for chronic pain and also for learning how to meditate. Visit the schedule for the next class!
Vinyasa means “breath-synchronized movement,” and Vinyasa yoga is a series of poses that will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling. Vinyasa movements are smoothly flowing and almost dance-like, which explains why it is sometimes referred to as Vinyasa Flow or just Flow. Designed for the experienced beginner with some exposure to basic poses, breathing and alignment. These classes include terminology, breath initiated movement, alignment and medium paced flows. Examples of postures include Sun Salutations, Half Moon, Warrior III and Supported Shoulderstand. Visit the schedule for the next class!
Sivananda Style Yoga
Victoria shares her practice of Sivananda Yoga which she learned while living in Sivananda Ashram in Kerala, India. This is an all-levels Hatha yoga class including breathing techniques and is taught as it was practiced in India. Come…try an original yoga practice.
Sivananda Yoga is a classical and holistic approach to Hatha Yoga that stretches and tones the whole body. The teachings have survived intact and are practiced as originally presented in India by Swami Sivananda in 1936.
This class begins with Breathing Techniques for overall health and stress management, then we move into yoga Sun Salutations followed by a series of 12 basic yoga poses. The 12 basic poses or asanas are much more than just stretching. They open the energy channels, chakras and psychic centers of the body while increasing flexibility of the spine, strengthening bones and stimulating the circulatory and immune systems. Along with proper breathing or pranayama, asanas also calm the mind and reduce stress. With regular practice one can ensure overall physical and mental health and the possible prevention of diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and arthritis. In time, performing the poses slowly and consciously, becomes a mental exercise in concentration and meditation.

Kundalini Yoga is known as the “yoga of awareness”. Considered one of the most spiritual styles of yoga, it includes meditation, mantra, physical exercises and breathing techniques. No two classes are the same, expect to dance, jump, hold long poses and breathe deeply. All classes begin with an opening chant and expect to finish with a deep relaxation, meditation and closing chant. It is great for beginners as it has the flexibility to push past your comfort zone, as well as, the ability to go at your own pace. It is a great way to recharge and heal your body quickly and find peace of mind.
